WASHINGTON, D.C.– In light of recent developments in the effort to enact comprehensive health care reform, experts at the Center for American Progress are available to provide their reactions and analysis.

Judy Feder, Senior Fellow at CAP, released a new analysis today, titled Cost Containment Is Key: Health Care Reform Will Bring Costs Under Control.

Health insurance that offers meaningful protection and is affordable hinges on getting ever-rising health costs under control…

“Health reform’s potential to actually produce these savings—of critical importance to the nation’s long-run economic health as well the individual financial health of all Americans —is just one more reason to challenge the argument that we cannot afford to enact health reform. The fact is, we simply cannot afford not to.”
